If you like brisket and you like Pork Belly, you will go head over heels over the Beef Navel. What is a Beef Navel? Its Beef Belly. Where Beef Bacon comes from!!!... and is there anything better than Bacon? Only more Bacon.
That said Beef Belly or Navel is very rare and un-common, so when our Domestic Wagyu supplier suggested we sell them, we literally jumped at the opportunity.
WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH BEEF NAVEL?
You can smoke it, make pastrami out of it and you can make home-made bacon among a few other things.
Yes, you will need to trim some of the fat... but that is what makes it fun (no, we can't trim the fat for you).
THIS IS NOT A BRISKET!
This isnt a cut to experiment on, well.. it is and it isn't. Its best to do your research and know exactly what you are buying for before you do. Otherwise, you may be dissapointed with the result. Specially, if you were expecting something brisket-like.
WHY IS OUR WAGYU BEST IN CLASS?
We work with what we consider to be the best Wagyu program in the US. This program processes a small amount of steers every week (140-175) which allows them to put care into every steer. These Navels come from a mid sized family owned company that puts a lot of care into each cut.
We have compared this program to others from major chains and stores, and we find that it consistently tastes better and eats better. This may be because these animals are fed for longer and at a slower phase than what you will find with other wagyu brands. The genetics of their animals are superior as well they’re very selective with the bulls they use from Japan (Japanese Kuroge Tajima bull).
